Re: [Myotubular_Myopathy] Jacob's next eye surgery and dental probllem
- Hi Amanda,I'm glad Jacob's right eye surgery went well. I think you are right, having theleft eye done now was a good decision. The bifocals will be easier for him towear than having to put the contact in the right eye.I hope all goes well with the teeth. Kyle recently cut his. He was cranky fora fews days off and on until they came in all the way. I used his nuk pen tomessage his gums. Also a lot of orajel. He doesn't seem to have any pain now.It did push one of his teeth a little sideways.We will continue to keep your family in our prayers.God bless,Darlene----- Original Message -----From: AmandaSent: Wednesday, October 13, 2004 7:55 AMSubject: [Myotubular_Myopathy] Jacob's next eye surgery
Well, Jacob's right-eye cataract extraction was successful.
However, when I took him for his last follow-up, she noticed that
the lens in his left eye is severely sublexed (inward), so we
decided to go ahead and have that lens extracted. This is good,
because now he won't have to wear a contact in his right eye, he can
just use bifocals to correct both eyes. I am actually relieved that
we can go ahead and get this over with instead of having to wait
until the cataract in his left eye is so bad he can't see out of
it. That is what happened with his right eye.
So, the next surgery will be on November 1. Please keep us in your
